Alyssa was a reliable and warm petsitter, helping my shy older cat feel at ease. She was flexible when I needed to add an additional visit, and did a great job giving my cat her pill. She was very communicative, and her updates and pictures helped me relax while I was away.

Alexis did a fantastic job taking care of our two very playful and active 1 1/2 year old cats. She provided a lot of videos and photo updates and the girls clearly had a blast playing with her. They were fed and litter clebed. She also kindly brought in our cleaned. We will absolutely be utilizing her services again in the future! Thank you!

About: Hi my name is Erica. I have been pet sitting and dog walking for over 15 years. I have had multiple dogs throughout my life and am experienced in dealing with puppies as well as senior dogs. I am used to caring for special needs animals as well as administering any medication needed. Growing up I was a member of my local 4-H club which allowed me the opportunity to learn about and take care of all different animals. I have also been riding horses for my entire life. I know our pets are part of our families and I will care for your fur baby as if they were my own! I work from home on Fridays so can be flexible with my time. I am also available on most Saturdays and Sundays for all services. I will be attentive to your pets needs and give you a full recap of the service and their well being after it is complete.

Mary did twice a day drop in visits to care for our two cats over the holidays at the end of 2022, which gave us great peace of mind while we were out of town. She came over for a meet and greet in advance, which was much appreciated. She provided detailed summaries of each visit along with lots of photos, so we knew our girls were doing well the whole time we were away. We would absolutely recommend Mary to others, and will feel confident booking with her again in the future. Thank you Mary!!

This was our first time using Rover, and Jes made us feel totally at ease throughout the entire process. He did great with our cat who has a bit of social anxiety and requires an inhaler for her asthma. Jess was gentle, patient, and hands on with her during his visits. He is definitely an expert and someone we'll use again when we leave town!

About: Hellloooo! I'm Genesis! I'm a college student looking to have a fun part time job. I live in the Bay Area and will be here until January! I am high risk so cleanliness is important for me. I've been around dogs my entire life and trained dogs. I also love cats as well and I have some experience with small animals like rabbits, ferrets, etc. I like to think I'm a well rounded animal person but I'm always willing to learn new things! With that being said, I love to challenge myself and am very flexible with differing needs and wants of your pets! Thank you so much for considering me and taking the time to read my bio! I look forward to connecting with you all and your pets before next year! I’m constantly doing pet care with a dog and a horse; it’s like second nature to me. I’m available after 2 MWF and all day TTh I treat every pet like they’re my own; with love and compassion. I also am a trainer so I can fix and/or teach basic obedience, or bad behavior

Jess is an awesome cat sitter. We had a weird setup where the cats needed to be kept separate and it was no issue at all for her. We felt fine about leaving knowing that Jess would be looking after them.

Laura was a great cat sitter for my two cats, Bean and Timmy. Bean can be difficult and standoffish while also being very vocal and Laura handled it like a pro. She also made sure to follow our instructions and requests and provide detailed daily report cards so my partner and I could vacation with ease. Her photos of our cats are some of the best we’ve received and some of them have landed in our personal photo albums. We will definitely work with Laura again! Thank you so much ☺️

I couldn’t recommend Phil enough! He was amazing with our previous dog that was shy with people and my current puppy who is young and perpetually excited. He is very responsible, experienced with dogs, great at communication and all in all an excellent Walker/sitter. I would trust my pup with Phil in a heartbeat!
